If you enjoy cooking then your kitchen must be the most important place in the house for you. People usually don’t show the kitchen when giving a tour of their house because it may be a bit messy. However, if you like to keep your kitchen spick and span and would like to show it off to others, then you need to make sure that it looks like the best possible version of itself.
One way to do that would be to make sure that your countertop is always impeccably decorated. Here are five ways in which you can decorate your kitchen countertop.
Add a Little Greenery to the Space
Make sure that your countertop stands out is by adding plants to the space. Plants are a great way to make any space feel homey and relaxed and it will do the same with your kitchen. You may think that plants will look way out of their league in a kitchen, but in reality, plants will add a pop of color to it.
There are a couple of different decor options you can try out with plant decor. You can suspend them in a hanging pot from the ceiling above the counter space if space on the counter is limited. You can also put a single plant or a bunch of them together in the corner of the counter so that you can add a decorative touch without them getting in the way. It will be just like a makeover for your kitchen!
Go Artsy with Your Trays
Another fun way to decorate your counter is by incorporating trays into the decor. Not only are trays an incredibly useful item to have in the kitchen but they can also add a touch of flair to your countertop. You can get some great options for decorative trays from pieces with glasswork to pieces doused in glitter.
Choose something that complements the mood of your kitchen and put all your frequently used cooking utensils in that tray. If you don’t want a tray that takes up so much space and want a smaller option, then you can opt for smaller trays in which you can hold all your condiments. If you want to keep a kitschy and natural vibe in your kitchen you can use your cutting board as a tray and put a little oil and spice bottles on it.
Keep It Modern with Appliances
Modern day appliances are made with keeping the needs of consumers in mind. Right now, people need appliances that not only get work done but also look good while getting it done. So don’t hide them in your drawers and cabinets. If they go with the color scheme of your kitchen, then proudly display them on your countertop to create the look of a modern kitchen.
Your electric pressure cooker will definitely rock the counter and you won’t have to go through the hassle of putting it away. You can also pair them with bowls or fruit or trays to create seamless decor that is incredibly convenient while looking great.
Let Your Utensils Become Art
If you want to decorate your countertop in the most practical and frugal way possible then you can do that by letting your utensils become decor items. There are a couple of different ways you can do that. You can choose a medium-sized pot and use it as a holder for all stirring utensils or silverware.
This setting will serve a dual purpose of making your countertop look pretty, while also making sure that all of your important silverware is right within your reach. One key factor to keep in mind while using this style of decor is, that you need to keep the color scheme of your kitchen in mind. If you have ceramic, marble or a wooden countertop then you can use colors like gold, copper and stainless steel for your utensils.
Go with Literal Art
If you don’t want to keep using different stuff in place of actual decor, then you always have the option of going for actual art to decorate your counter space. The key to nailing this is that you pick pieces that look prominent on their own but don’t overwhelm the whole counter space.
You need to place your artwork in a place where it is not in the risk of getting knocked over by you while you are cooking. The art needs to be someplace where everyone can see it but still in a corner where it does not get in the way of your cooking. This is one way to make your kitchen look modern.
The best way to keep your kitchen looking awesome is to ensure that it is always clean. No amount of decor will lift up your kitchen if it’s untidy and disgusting. So before bringing any decor into your kitchen, it is important to ensure that your kitchen is in the best possible condition.
